A digital vault by its very nature is going to provide some standard services to ensure that its contents are protected, such as being a long-term repository, highly secured regardless of overall network security and regardless of the physical topology of the network. It must offer an effective way to protect and control critical information, and it allows an organisation to focus its defense resources to a vault at any location. It is easier for an organisation to defend one point effectively that to try and defend a complete network.
The Digital Network Vault is also a secure storage area, but should not be confused with secure storage. In much the same way as a physical vault will reside within a building, the digital vault can utilize corporate storage systems. The Vault protects the information when it resides inside the Vault, and the data is secured from all major security risks over a network environment.
